MENICHETTI MAKES A RETURN: Roberto Menichetti may be making a comeback on the fashion scene. According to sources, Italian apparel brand Cruciani has tapped Menichetti as creative director. Menichetti’s family-owned apparel company is based in the medieval town of Gubbio, in Italy’s central Umbria region, not far from Cruciani’s own headquarters in Trevi. Luca Caprai, founder and chief executive officer of Cruciani, has been steadily expanding the cashmere knitwear brand into a lifestyle collection for women and men. A spokeswoman for Cruciani declined to comment and phone calls to Menichetti were not returned at press time. If he joins Cruciani, it will be the latest in a string of jobs held by the designer in the last decade—- beginning with Burberry under then-ceo Rose Marie Bravo, then Cerruti in 2001, his own collection a year later and, in 2004, a year-long stint at Celine. He discontinued his own line two years ago.
